Our IT recruitment team is looking for a Senior recruiter to be based from our London office and support hiring across a variety of teams across the EMEA region. As a (Senior) Recruiter at Tesla, you develop deep partnerships with your business stakeholders, your peers and with our wider People team. Your business acumen, passion for recruiting and a genuine commitment to find the best talents on the market are core skills needed to succeed in this role.
